2 year layout sketch anniversary - January sketch

Thursday, January 15, 2009

This month marks TWO YEARS of doing layout sketches on the blog! As such something a little different that I haven't done in those two years... a double page card sketch. I started doing these a few months ago as digi templates and I love them. When I started scrapbooking I did a LOT of double pagers and I still them occasionally now. There is something about double pagers though that I like designing. Maybe it's the fact that there are more options, more variety? So here is the sketch for January 2009!

The digital template is available for sale in my digital stores.

One thing I like about double pagers is LOTS OF PHOTO'S. Perfect for documenting events. These photo's are from my birthday in December 2008, remember I said we went snowboarding, well I scrapped those pics! Go me! Anyone who knows me, knows that usually new pics sit on the hardrive for at least 6 months before they get scrapbooked, but I'm trying to actually scrapbook more. Oh and for those wondering no my coat doesn't match the kit perfectly, I altered it in photoshop :) I'd like one this color (or a bit lighter) to match my snowboard, but till my current one wears out, or I see a the perfect one on sale, I'm stuck with red. I chose to use the 8.5x11 version of the template.
